    Eh how did someone think I was you:confused:

    Oh god, I'm now in love with St Andrews:love:
    My interviewers were lovely! They didn't ask me anything tricky and made me feel at ease when I was all nervy when they asked the first question bless them, how was yours?
    I ended up wearing a pink shirt and was given an earlier time lol It was just as we went in to read our articles and he was like "This is a weird question but are you from student room?" i said yeah but explained that i wasnt who he thought i was.

    St andrews is great! But i got so nervous and couldnt stop talking so I'm not thinking it went too well :/

    I was too chicken to ask if anyone was from TSR in my group. Everyone was so quiet when we were reading the article. I just had the biggest urge to start laughing or saying something stupid.

    Alas, everyone seemed so focused on the article that no such conversation appeared

    Nah, he was just quick enough to ask before we started reading Mine was deadly silent too! But i'd forgotten to click on my pen before we started so i felt really awkward when i had to click it.

    When was your interview?

    Mine was in November (I think).

    There was this awkward moment when some people had forgotten to bring pens and had to break the silence. Obviously, all the girls came prepared with sleek pencil cases as such so they were fine.

    How did you feel yours went?

    That's quite a while ago, have you heard back yet?
    Lol i wasnt one like them. We were half way there and i suddenly remembered but thankfully mum had one in her handbag, what a lifesaver!
    I dont think mine went that well. Some of it was good but i kept on getting things mixed up and couldnt stop talking at one point. How was yours? What was your article on?

    I actually looked for you after i came back from my tour! but the girl giving my tour talked for aaaaaaages (but she was really lovely and helpful too) so i probs missed you

    Do St.Andrews get their articles from the bbc health news section or are they from the student bmj and bmj magazines or are they completely random??

    Are you blonde? Pretty sure i saw you but it couldve been quite awkward had it not been, you know? I may not have stood out as someone getting interviewed cause i arrived in my normal clothes or i may have been in the toilets with my wardrobe malfunction.. not fun.

    I honestly cant remember their names! But there was a cardology lady sitting in with 2 other ladies. One had really short hair and the other had longer darker hair in a ponytail or bun. Who did you have?

    Nono, i have brown hair but i was wearing a black pencil skirt and heels with my pinktop instead Haha what wardrobe malfunction did you have? I got changed in the toilets in the cafe i was at which was why i was nearly late for my interview.... plus i may have underestimated the amount of time it takes me to walk in heels :ninja:

    My interviewers were really lovely, i had a woman and a man and the woman had a phd and worked at the med school and the man was a doctor

    Reckon we'll have heard by this friday? I have a feeling yes :eek:
    i dont knw what smilie to use for that decision :/

    Well.. my shirt didnt fit so i had to swap with my mum in the toilets. If anyone noticed I cant believe what they must've thought but we just found it hilarious! Heels really slow you down, it was pretty difficult trying to keep up with everyone on the tour - i felt pretty silly
    That would be great to hear by friday whatever the outcome. I just want to know!
    Have you heard from anywhere else? where did you apply?

    I dont think the questions were too bad, the just kept on asking me how what i wrote in my ps would relate to being a doctor. It ended up being quite repetitive.
    Can you imagine how embarrassing it'd be if you had? Dont think i'd be able to cope lol

    Thanks! I've been trying to think about which one i'd choose but I think it's going to have to be a pros and cons list effort. We'll see. Is St Andrews your first choice?
    Yeah LOL no one else seems to be talking on this. Atleast until tomorrow when more offers may be coming out..:eek:

    Applying for medicine has turned me really sad.
